Cosmetic surgery is an area of plastic surgery focusing on surgically enhancing your appearance. Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty that reconstructs facial and body defects resulting from trauma, burns, diseases, or congenital abnormalities. Your surgeon can perform cosmetic surgery Scarsdale on different sections of your body, including the neck and head. Potential benefits of a cosmetic surgical procedure include enhanced body image and self-esteem, a boost in your natural appearance, improved mental health, less pain in the back or neck, and better sleep.
Subsequently, below are common surgery procedures your surgeon may recommend to enhance your aesthetic appearance.
- Breast surgery
Different surgeries can help improve the appearance of your breasts. Surgical treatments you may need are breast lift, breast reduction, and breast augmentation or enlargement.
For instance, breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgery that places breast implants underneath the chest muscles or breast tissue. Sometimes, breast enlargement may involve fat grafting.
You may require breast augmentation if you have drooping breasts, your breasts have changed in size after pregnancy and breastfeeding, your breasts are too small, or one breast is larger.
As a man, you can also benefit from breast surgery if you have man boobs, a condition known as gynecomastia.
- Vulvovaginal surgery
Vaginal plastic surgery is a procedure that aims to construct or repair your vagina. You may require vaginal repair or construction to tighten and improve the shape of your vagina. Your vagina may become loose or slack due to aging or childbirth.
You may also require vaginal plastic surgery to reconstruct your vagina, having undergone radiotherapy or surgical excision to treat cancer or other conditions.
Vaginal plastic surgery may also help resolve an issue present from birth that affects the normal development of your vagina.
Also called a tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery aimed at removing excess fats, tissues, and skin from the lower part of your abdomen. Therefore, the belly becomes thinner and firmer.
You may require a tummy tuck if you have excess fat or skin around your lower abdomen because of pregnancy, abnormal weight changes, or an abdominal surgery like a C-section.
- Butt lift
This cosmetic procedure can help enhance the appearance of your buttocks and hips. Your plastic surgeon may ensure you get a rounder, more feminine curve in your buttocks by undertaking a fat transfer or relying on butt implants.
A butt lift is excellent if your backside is too big compared to the rest of your body or too flat or square. An unexpected weight loss and pregnancy may also push you to undergo a butt lift.
- Neck lift
Medically referred to as lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift is a surgical procedure that can remove excess fat and skin from your neck to relieve symptoms of aging, such as wrinkles and creases in the neck area.
You can lose youthful contours in your neck, face, and jawline areas due to genetics, stress, and environmental conditions.
Alternatively, you can reduce wrinkling in the neck by using a minimally invasive treatment like Botox injections.
Other cosmetic treatments that may also be popular include facelift, forehead lift, eyelid lift, and thigh lift.
